This chapter will describe the ultrasound wave, how it is produced, and what effect body tissues have on it as it passes through the body. It will describe the key principles that underpin image resolution and discuss the importance of the ultrasound pulse. The advanced section will introduce how Doppler ultrasound and aliasing are produced.
